Re: Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling
My initial reaction was "Just be grateful you CAN go to school without being shot."
Yes of course she has a point, but I don't believe that anybody, however privileged, has had education handed to them on a plate. Nor should they: it's about being equipped with the tools you need in order to educate yourself. I don't think it's right that such an important thing should be handed over to the state, or anybody else. If you delegate it, who is to say what your education should cover? So don't delegate it - control it.
I speak as a former teacher.
